Sorry for the brevity, I'd not made a request of this nature before.
Hopefully some more context helps. It doesn't _need_ to be deleted... I'm
just concerned that people are still using the package in its archaic form.

Ghost as a project has come up with their own installer that complicates
the idea of packaging ghost for arch. If someone wanted to package
ghost-cli (the installer) that would make sense... but the installer is
_very_ specific to running on Ubuntu.

Ghost doesn't want to distribute itself in a way that is easily
maintainable for any distribution other than Ubuntu. I put an addendum to
the top of my blog post about how I'm using ghost on arch to this effect:
